Worodougou in Côte d'Ivoire

Worodougou in Côte d'Ivoire

Many Worodougou are subsistence farmers in small villages; raising rice, corn, yams, cashews and cotton. Some of the younger generation have moved to larger cities. Their grandfathers were the first to become Muslims, but in most of the small villages they are "Muslim" in name only. Most don't go to the mosque. It is their spirit worship or ancestor worship that really holds their attention. People are afraid of sorcerers, death, hell and their ancestors and spend most of their money on "protection" of various sorts. They memorize the Koran without understanding it. Whoever has money is expected to send their oldest relatives to Mecca on the hajj pilgrimage.

Ministry Obstacles

There are only a couple of Bible portions available to this African people group.

Outreach Ideas

Pray that workers who know how to tell stories from scripture in the language of the Worodougou would be sent to this tribe.

Scripture Focus

"Oh come, let us sing to the LORD; let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation! Let us come into his presence with thanksgiving; let us make a joyful noise to him with songs of praise!"  Psalm 95:1-2

Scripture Prayer

Pray that many from today’s people group will sing joyfully to the Lord, the rock of their salvation!

Prayer Focus

There are Christian believers within the Worodougou tribe. Pray these individuals would find each other in order to be encouraged. Pray they would learn to study scripture and pray together. Pray for rising literacy levels among this tribe and for employment opportunities. Pray these people would be delivered from fear through trust in Christ. Pray for a movement to Christ this decade.
